Toronto indie-pop quintet Alvvays’ debut was the perfect amalgamation of pristine pop music, early-’60s AM-radio pop and late-’80s freak-scene discord. That eponymous album – laced with melancholy, beautiful moments, and the twinkly thrills of C86-era indie – brought to mind indie icons The Magnetic Fields, Pavement and Camera Obscura.
And their star is rising. Starting as a solo project for Molly Rankin, in a short period of time they’ve gone from dingy basements to Shepherd’s Bush Empire. This is their second trip to Larmer Tree Gardens and we couldn’t be more excited to hear the promised new music.
